Jazz Changes

“Love, Gloom, Cash, Love” by pianist Herbie Nichols was a superb recording. Nichols was one of a kind; he may remind us of Powell and Monk, and of Teddy Wilson and Fats Waller, but it was also obvious that he played with a jazz style that was uniquely his. As a composer, he may have worked (as Monk often did) with brief and simple ideas. He had the ability to turn and phrase those ideas uniquely and to set them off with originality. And he could develop them compositionally.
